Hi group,\n\nJust a quik question,\n\nIve installed a Baumatic cooker hood complete with ducting to an\noutside wll. The hood is the min 75 cm above the cooker. My trouble is\nthat the steam ad fumes dont seem to get caught by the hood. The hood\nwas nearly 300 pounds so im asuming its a fairly good one, the ducting\nis about 2 meters ( not too long ?). reading the literature it says\nthere is a recirc mode and an extratct mode,are these the same exept\nthe fume are vented in extract mode ?. The reason i have dubts is that\nwhen the fan is running some air is pumped out to the ducting , while\nsome air is expelled out of the side of the fan motor. I know that\nwith my shower fan all air it takes in is pushed out. Sorry if im\nrambling an ideas on this one guys and gals ???
